“you are at the top”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

If you are staying at La Collinette this is a good stop as after a very nice light meal it is only a short walk from Cafe Victoria, but it does close at 5.p.m. It is also next door to the Tourist Information and Museum.

“a refuge on a bitterly cold day”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

Cafe Victoria is located up a steep climb from the harbour. It is worth it for both the cafe and the small museum and art gallery alongside. On a very cold day in April my wife and I sought refuge inside and were not disappointed with our lunch time refreshment. Tomato soup for her, cream of broccoli soup for me and what bowls they were. I cannot recall ever having such large, deep bowls. They were filled with hot, tasty nourishing soup, clearly made from fresh ingredients. Each was accompanied by about half a baguette of crusty bread. And this was only £4.95 each. We also had tea and this came in a very large teapot.
The cafe seats about 60 in a building shaped like a bandstand. Tables and chairs are of light oak. The whole place is airy and fresh with smart service.

“Terrible decision to change management”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Gone downhill... the only thing that has gone up is the prices! Food was OK but expensive compared to last year. One of the waitresses is the same and she is very good. Not the same good atmosphere that was once there.

“Great location, lovely food, good place to relax”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Brilliant place to enjoy a snack, light lunch, afternoon tea or just a wine with a friend.

I've done all of this over the years and you can always be assured of a high standard of food.

There is also a great gift shop with lots of local Guernsey gifts and unusual things that are ideal for birthday and Christmas gifts!

The nearby Candie Gardens are well worth a mooch and the views of the Harbour fantastic from certain places in the garden.

Don't miss this quiet, relaxing hideaway, great value
